Our Expertise

Germain Maureau supports its clients from the inception of their projects. Our firm ensures a global approach to securing intellectual property — utilizing legal, scientific, and administrative expertise.


A patent is a crucial tool for protecting your technology. It allows you to capitalize on your investment in R&D, through a grant of a 20-year monopoly on your technology.


A trademark is a powerful symbol for your customers. A dynamic brand management strategy relies on an all-encompassing approach.


A design relates to an appearance of a product – shapes, contours, decorative and ornamental patterns, icons, and graphic interfaces.

NTICs and Domain Names

Originally a technical consideration, a domain name is now the digital counterpart of your brand, which allows the public to identify and authenticate you on the Internet.


Germain Maureau collaborates with key players in innovation in the Lyon area.
